Behind the leadership of Mr. Williams, Kennesaw State also has been successful in cultivating relationships with the business community as the Department of Athletics has signed sponsorship agreements with Fifth Third Bank, WellStar Health System, Superior Plumbing and Henssler Financial that have brought in more than $10 million in revenue to support student-athletes and athletics facilities.
